Opera Portable detects the Rockstar Games launcher as being another instance of Opera Portable

If I have the Rockstar Games launcher running, I will receive an error when I try to launch Opera Portable, saying that it is already running. If I close the Rockstar Launcher, I can then open Opera Portable. If I open Opera first, I can then open the Rockstar Launcher without any conflicts after that as long as I don't close and reopen Opera.

Does this mean the Rockstar Launcher is built upon Opera Portable? Or maybe just regular Opera? It's kinda weird, whatever the cause!


GoogleChromePortable 86 constantly wipes cookies

Submitted by TagMax on October 12, 2020 - 6:41pm

I've been using GoogleChromePortable (multiple instances) for years now with no issues, updating regularly. The latest update to 86 is causing all of my instances to wipe all cookies pretty regularly (multiple times a day often) after restart. A bit frustrating that I lost all cookies on all instances!

Any thoughts on what is causing this?

Where are Flash Games Saved in each Browser

Submitted by KPS2020 on September 10, 2020 - 8:55pm

I recently went the portable route with PortableApps because I was tried of having to save my data and transport it from computer to computer. I know I can log into things but sometimes I'm not on my machine and I don't want to log into things. So I now have ChromePortable, FireFoxPortable and OperaGXPortable.

Chrome Portable and Portable Passwords Issue

Submitted by zaqik on September 7, 2020 - 11:58am


I managed to set up portable passwords (GoogleChromePortable.ini with proper settings near the Launcher) but I have an issue with it. Before I made this settings there were 4 passwords stored in Chrome. After adding the portable passwords I try to add another, 5th password. It stores fine until I run Chrome under another OS. After Chrome starts I go to the settings and see this message

Some settings were reset

How to install several separate versions of Chrome Portable - NOT "update"

Submitted by Asteriz on September 1, 2020 - 11:06pm

I forgot what it actually does and whether there is some way to control that latter in the install process but the first prompt upon running say GoogleChromePortable_68.0.3440.84_online.paf.exe is downright scary. I don't want to run any risk of the thing even thinking about "updating" anything - ever. I just want it to park all it's bits into whatever folder I give it - no less and no more.

Is there a command line switch or something?

How to get Chrome to remember passwords

Submitted by nocternalvibe on July 30, 2020 - 7:06am

I have Chrome on a thumb-drive with multiple profiles and I would like to save the Usernames and Passwords within Chrome Portable. Any computer I put the thumb-drive into and launch Chrome always saves the Username and Password to the computer. I did follow the instructions on how to change the ini file to save passwords in Chrome but it does not work. Any ideas?

chrome not showing previous profiles, tabs and windows anymore after crash

Submitted by LidVan on July 27, 2020 - 11:49am

I'm using 14 different profiles in Chrome Portable, each profile has a few windows and several tabs.
Setting "continu were you left off" is on .
I had to hard reset my pc and now when I start Chrome portable, only my main default profile starts without the tabs and windows that should be there. Worse when I try to open another profile from the "other people" list none are there anymore.

Until recently, there was always a portable version of waterfox on the waterfox download page. It was real paf, with portable apps logo etc.
Since certainly week or longer, this version seems not to exist any more, the download button gives 404.
Is there anything known about waterfox portable here?
